This film directed by Steven Silver (The Last Just Man) takes place during the final years of the apartheid in South Africa during the 1990s. These days are seen through the eyes and lens of four young photographers who, among other things, captured the fight between the National Peacekeeping Force and the African National Congress in the Tokoza township. These photographers are Kevin Carter (Taylor Kitsch), Greg Marinovich (Ryan Phillippe), Ken Oosterbroek (Frank Rautenbach) and Joao Silva (Neels Van Jaarsveld).
The film is adapted from the book of the same name written by Greg Marinovich and Jao Silva. Besides, the film also stars Malin Åkerman, Ashley Mulheron and Russel Savadier.
